Disrupting the Status Quo: From Economic Growth to Social Progress

205

Published on

Michael Porter is one of the world’s leading thinkers on strategy and competitiveness and leading authority on the competitiveness of nations and regions. His work, particularly on the Global Competitiveness report has helped improve the lives of millions of people, by helping countries choose evidence-based policies to accelerate economic progress. In recent years, Porter has raised the question of why the legitimacy of business has fallen to levels not seen in recent history. His 2011 work on creating shared value addresses such questions and provides concrete solutions. Today Porter is wrestling with a related but broader challenge. His talk will outline a new frontier and framework for thinking about development: social progress.

  • Who Needs It?The challenge for leaders in government who want to go “beyond GDP” has been what measure of wellbeing to use?Lack of measurement has also obscured the opportunities for business to redirect capitalism to tackle societal challenges (Shared Value).Without a rigorous, comprehensive measure of social and environmental value, it can be difficult for social entrepreneurs to argue for investments in noneconomic aspects of development.
